Clinical research in implant dentistry: evaluation of implantsupported restorations, aesthetic and patient-reported outcomes


ABSTRACT: The articles discussed in working group 3 dealt with specific aspects of clinical research. In this context, the literature reporting on survival and complication rates of implant-supported or implant-tooth supported restorations in longitudinal studies of at least 5 years were discussed. The second aspect dealt with the evaluation of aesthetic outcomes in clinical studies and the related index systems available. Finally, the third aspect discussed dealt with patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs). A detailed appraisal of the available methodology was presented.

KEY WORDS: clinical research; complication rates; aesthetic outcomes; implant dentistry; patient-reported outcome measures; survival
